Sharjah deploys Bentley's cadastral solution
Integrated tool to improve efficiencies at town planning department
Software giant Bentley Systems has completed the implementation of its fully integrated cadastral solution for Sharjah’s Directorate of Town Planning and Survey (DTPS).
The solution incorporates an enterprise geospatial information system (GIS) based on Bentley Geospatial Server and a computer-aided design (CAD) data editing system based on Bentley Cadastre.
The move means that DTPS’ new system, called the Integrated Land Management Solution (ILMS), replaces the previous solution that had used independent GIS and CAD workflows, which had led to data inconsistencies, inefficiency and other quality issues.
By integrating these data flows, the new ILMS has created a single spatial data store than standardises workflow and approval processes. This enables all of the departments within DTPS, including survey, planning, public services, land registration, and GIS, to leverage authorisations, audits, and logs of actions taken to help expedite the services they provide.
“Our frustration with the quality of data in our legacy GIS focused our attention on integrating our GIS and CAD workflows,” said Ahmed Al Khatib, head of GIS data management, DTPS.
“Bentley’s ability to provide an enterprise GIS that works seamlessly with Oracle Spatial met our needs for standardised workflows, audit trails, security, enterprise printing and plotting, and more. Moreover, the unique capabilities of Bentley Cadastre as an editing environment are attractive to any organization involved with land management and parcel management workflows.”
